Voters hand GOP gubernatorial nomination to Scott Wagner

Candidates from left seeking the Republican Party's nomination to challenge Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf's re-election bid next year Pennsylvania Sen. Scott Wagner R York County Laura Ellsworth and Paul Mango

Wagner defeated first-time candidates Paul Mango and Laura Ellsworth, surviving weeks of Mango's sharp-elbowed attack ads that painted Wagner as sleazy and greedy.

Hampden Township resident Gil Longwell is knocking on doors for Laura Ellsworth.

Harris said that he was impressed by how hard Wagner campaigned and how extensively he covered the state in trying to reach voters.

Voters throughout the region hit the polls on Primary Day in Pennsylvania as matchups are now being decided for the midterm elections in November.

Wagner, the 62-year-old president and owner of Penn Waste trash hauling service who was elected to the Senate four years ago, entered the governor's race early last year.

They were campaigning in Philadelphia over the weekend.

Wagner has compiled one of the Senate's most conservative voting records, although he occasionally goes against GOP orthodoxy on issues, such as supporting an increase in the minimum wage. Wagner and Wolf live in York County.

Wagner is brash - "I am going to be the next governor, take that to the bank", he said a year ago - and has a penchant for off-the-cuff speaking that makes him a magnet for controversy.

ABC27 and Susquehanna Polling and Research's latest poll puts Wagner ahead at 37%, Mango next at 23% and Ellsworth in third at 18%. In an unorthodox move, he also picked his own running, Montgomery Co. real estate executive Jeff Bartos, who won the Republican nomination for lieutenant governor Tuesday. "I've been campaigning like I'm 20 points behind all through the campaign". "We feel precisely the same way".

"There's 22 percent undecided". "We've been going from 6am in the morning until 1am the next morning for the last couple of months".

Despite the attack ads circulating throughout the primary, 67% of voters said they are happy with the choices for Governor.

"Leading the Republican legislature, Scott Wagner has been standing in the way of progress and blocking efforts to change Harrisburg and help Pennsylvania families".
